5.0 out of 5 stars The best introduction to philosophy, 7 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Modern Philosophy: An Introduction and Survey (Paperback)
This book is the ideal preparation for reading the great philosophers. Defining philosophy as abstract and ultimate with an interest in truth, Scruton presents difficult topics with extraordinary clarity. He lives up to his aim of expressing the problems of the head in the language of the heart: reading this I felt that it spoke directly to my heart, something that I have never experienced with any other book. The fact that he is a fox-hunting Tory doesn't put me off at all. I found some of the examples rather charming: Scruton asks us to consider the proposition 'I am in pain'. This is one of my favorite books, second only to 'Care of the Soul' by Thomas Moore.
